Art Director*

Try new things. Influence processes. Do work you can be proud of.  Be an Art Director at Fluid!

At Fluid we work to live, not live to work.  Taking risks and doing new things is core to what we do. We think great ideas can come from anyone, regardless of role or level. You are not defined by your job description.  We are a team of generalists and value flexibility and adaptability. If you want to partner with high-profile brands and directly impact a product, then this is the place for you. Most importantly, if you believe that the people make a great company, then this is definitely the place for you!

The Job

We are looking for a passionate and highly collaborative Art Director to join our growing team in Oakland. As an Art Director on the Creative team, you will have a direct impact on our clients and defining the next generation of design at Fluid. 

The Team

You will be working with a talented group of designers.  Egos are not part of our culture. We support each other while having fun and getting $h*t done.  Individuals are self-motivated, proactive and action-based. We take pride in the work we do and the solutions we provide our customers.


To be an Art Director at Fluid means you are a designer at your core. You have an irrational love of typography, color theory, white space and scale. You are ready, willing and able to inspire, grow and lead a team of amazing creatives and you’ve already got some experience doing just that. You value your relationships with clients and know how to speak the language of design to them. You are dedicated to your craft and are ready to work with some of the biggest and most respected brands in the world, because you know you can guide them to the innovative, award-winning, ground-breaking digital shopping experiences they demand.

What you’ll do here:

You’ll be the best of both worlds - a very strong, hands on designer that has great leadership and communication skills. You’ll lead cross-discipline teams from initial concepts through launch for brands like Fender Guitars, Puma, Nixon Watches, Citibank, Michael Kors and Google to name a few. You’ll join and contribute to a creative, collaborative environment in which you and your team can take risks, break new ground, and leave the obvious in the dust on the way to great things.
